Project Description Narrative:


Rates of coronavirus are higher in Milwaukee than the rest of Wisconsin, with high infection rates and deaths in the city’s northside Black communities. However, current coronavirus projections are only provided at the state level and more detailed spatial and temporal information about the spread of the infection, and disparities, is needed. This information is crucial as additional waves of infection and response are anticipated over the next 12-18 months until a vaccine or effective antiviral medications are identified.

This project aims to go beyond basic emergency planning to establish a dynamic, responsive, decision-supportive data analysis resource for Milwaukee County.
